First day on the street!
: : : Skating in a really smooth underground parking garage is fun! Do it , of course, when there are no cars about. Night time is the long as it is lit. I wouldn't take any ramps that are too steep.
: : :
: : : Cheers!
: : : Biff

: : : : I finally rollerskated on the street! It was fun but scary at first. I just went fast in a fairly level empty parking lot. I have the rainskates 59mm 85a wheels. Should I put kryptonics on it? What are fun things (safe) that I can practice besides sidestance. Jumping off the curbs is out but thats the first desire that comes to mind lol. This is not normal I'm sure.....
: :
: : welcome back, soft rainskates are probably just what you need right now, krypts will be better on the longboard.
: : what a coincidence, we just got home from rolling a highrise carpark in town. good luck + take it easy.
: : cheers, h .

: Woo Hoo! best to you rolling again, that's good news.
: careful tho' and keep those pads on.

I love all you guys! Thanks for letting me share my minuscule feats. :-D
Yes, even wearing helmet on the rollerskates.

Hey, the parking garages here say No Bicycles, skateboards, rollerblades. If I went after the work hours or weekends, think I would get in big trouble still? They are pretty strict here with us evil folks lol. That parking lot I roll on is fairly smooth and all and empty.

My biggest problem is I still want (actually CRAVE) to jump off something on my wheels and get a rush lol. So I decided not to get a longboard deck for now as I'm not sure if I can not want to bomb down hills with it, sold my old non bouncy mountain bike, I had 2 MTBs so keeping the fun one, and I'm getting a race 24" wheel BMX (Haro Race). Its so light so I can jump off mild stuff, lift/maneuver it easily. This way I can satisfy my impulses without much risk as I never fall off a bike. I love working at a bike shop! I'm trying to be safe until my Dr. says my arm is 100% and insurance is OK but still be happy. Hope this is good enough because I dont have much else to sell lol.

So far, I still have insurance, stitches out in 2 days! Arm just itches now, like mad. But I peaked. No butt crack on my arm!!!! Its all smooth like normal again. Just looks thinner now without the implant.

Keep up the pics/vids as at least I can get off on those. Love the uni but still missing the bowls.
